    Excuse the question of an technoprobe…about printing the photo images you post. Is that discouraged? Or can you post high resolution photo images one may download and print?
    p.s. Concerning the high resolution images of domain material, if one has to place the logo over them, do they really serve to show what Lizzie looked like?

    I don’t mind people printing photos, so please feel free. I have recently had discussion with the Bridgeman Art Library about receiving a license to include high resolution images. The fee is a bit high, but I am considering it.
    About the watermark on the high resolution images of Lizzie: I tried my best to make the watermark very light and not obscure her face. My main concern was people taking the images and placing them on their sites with out giving me credit. The watermark seemed the only logical solution.
